Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—One might expect a book with this title to be a rhyming text or counting story, but this offering is neither. Instead, it tells of a group of firefighters who receive a call just as they are sitting down to dinner. They dutifully grab their gear, climb onto the truck, and speed through traffic to reach their destination. After they save the family and cat, they return to the firehouse, have dinner, and go to bed. The pictures mirror the text, with cartoon bubbles that indicate dialogue, while the action is narrated by a single sentence per page and occasional sound effects. The book's size, typeset, and simple pictures are reminiscent of Lois Lenski's The Little Fire Engine (Random, 2000). Although it is nice to see an old-fashioned-style book with a multicultural cast and a female firefighter, the inclusion of the word "little" in the title seems somewhat condescending and precious. An additional purchase.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

Our son LOVES this book. I was so excited to find a hard cover used so inexpensively. It's like new and arrived in a couple days.

Five fire fighters are getting ready to eat dinner. All of a sudden the fire bell rings. They race off to fight the fire! They save the family but where is the cat? They go back in and are able to find her as well! Great work fire fighters!

Actually, I had this sent directly to my daughter for my grandson's third birthday. It did arrive on time, and she said it was exactly what he wanted. I didn't get to see it because they live out of state. But he had read the book at daycare and really loved it.
